Staying Motivated with your Blogging - Work with Others

Pro Blogging News 2 comments

Susannah at Buzz Marketing has a great post on Staying Motivated with your blogging which is well worth the read. Regular posting is an essential part of blogging for profit - I know I can go a week or so without noticing too big a drop in earnings - but if you’re trying to build your readership and income regular and interesting posting is absolutely essential. Of course this takes discipline and motivation. Susannah has a good list to help you get motivated for the year of blogging ahead.

I do most of what she suggests in her list but another thing I’ve done a bit of lately is work with others on posts and projects.

I find that blogging can be a lonely process at times - for starters most of my friends think I’m crazy and give me the strangest look when I answer the ‘what do you do?’ question with ‘I’m a blogger’ - but I also find that blogging can be quite an isolating process - staring at your computer all day, researching, writing, reflecting etc. Whilst as an introvert I do enjoy time alone I also find that too much of it leaves me feeling rather lifeless and unmotivated.

Recently I’ve started initiating relationships with a number of others with the view to entering into some common partnerships. I find that when I do this it can be quite inspiring and energizing.

So find yourself a blogging partner - it might be another blogger, or it might just be one of those people that gives you one of ‘those’ looks when you mention the word ‘blogging’. You see someone who is new to the medium comes at it with a fresh approach, their own passions and interests and might just help you discover something new about blogging.

By the way - I’m seeking collaborators at the moment for blogging ideas and projects. I hope to have a bit more time this year to work with some of you - so if you have a project that you think might be mutually beneficial to us both let me know and we’ll see where our conversation leads us to.
